English encapsulates all of the elements that help us to succeed in life. An effective grasp of English Literature and Language can assist us to meet objectives in our working life, day-to-day life and can be a wonderful method of enrichment and entertainment for a life time.
At all key stages, English at Melksham Oak Community School is designed to reflect the need of every student to use and understand English while meeting their full potential in the areas of reading, writing, speaking and listening.
Enhanced by access to interactive technologies, we have developed a range of innovative and creative methods of teaching young people, helping them to become literate, self-aware and capable of communicating effectively through English in its many forms.
Our schemes of work and teaching styles reflect our belief that English studies will provide students with an understanding of how they can make sense of the world including a wide variety of social situations encountered in adult life.
